No one that I know of...
All 70-71 351C M-Codes, and all CJ oil pans had the lower baffles like the Boss 351C did.
Some aftermarket pans come with a lower baffle... you could just make the upper one.
BUT no one will see it so I would buy a windage that bolts to the bottom of the block.
MPG had a very good style but they stopped making them... so look at a Canton 351C windage about $100.00

Good luck

Boss 351 used the same oil pan as the 351CJ and 351HO, which had a slosh baffle and the crank scraper. . Service replacement number D1ZZ-6375-C. The 2V and 4V had only the baffle in the sump.

Yous should be able to find good used ones in the usual spots - eBay, marketplace etc. I have seen a couple of the later NOS units pop up, that don't have the sump tray. IIRC, they are a D7xx number.

Hemikiller... interested in how you know? There is a lot of bad data out there on the internet... youtube even more BS [jm2c]

I'm a first owner/current of a 73 H-Code [and purchased many 70 untouched blocks], no baffles on 2V.. Second owner of a 70 M-code [first owner was Ford Motor Company, used from their 'B' lot] and a current owner of an untouched 70 M-code only lower baffle. {I have wrenched on 351C's since 1971... ]

Never saw the Boss extra baffle on a CJ [untouched, maybe owner added?]

Have no experience w/HO or R motors.

You can see I'm not challenging you, just want hard data...

Most of my knowledge comes from first hand experience. I paid for several restorations by parting out 71-73 cars. Knowing what parts were valuable was key, and the CJ pan as I used to call it was a good one. I've had two 72 351CJ engines that came out of wrecked/rotted parts cars. Both had the baffle and scraper, and were untouched as far as I could tell. Almost every one of the dozens of 70-73 2Vs I've owned had at least the baffle plate in the sump, think I've seen maybe one or two without. At least one had a the Boss/CJ pan. Can't quantify which one was which, nor did I check dates or stamps on the pans. Two years ago I bought a very early (105xxx VIN) 71 351-2V sportsroof that looked like it got used in a Dukes of Hazard stunt, with a stuffed oil pan and bearings to match, also had a baffle in the sump. Motor was very original, down to the Ford bearings and fifty years of goop in the pan. Going to say that I also read articles of the years stating as such. There are several others here that I trust, that have had similar experiences.

As always, it's "never say never" when we're talking about an assembly with production schedules.

Parents purchased a new 64-1/4 mustang 289 2v. Brother raced his friends never lost. When it came to me I installed a 289 4V, sold old one to a friend. When disassembled motor had just two 2V pistons and six 289 4V HIPO's...

Yes, no one wants to stop the production line lol thks

I agree my untouched 2v 351C was 100 % original and has the lower oil pan baffle from the factory. I am pretty sure all 351 Clevelands have at least the lower pan baffle.

My 72 H code had the lower baffle only.

I have read that the Boss/HO pan is 6 quart. Are the CJ's with both baffles also 6 quart pans?

There was no physical difference in the pan stamping. Ford simply calibrated the B351 dipstick to read full at 6 quarts with filter.

1973 Grande #1 looong time ago
1970 Sportsroof #2 almost as long
1971 Sportsroof M-code #3 needs money
2008 GT #4 where the money went
Sounds like a person could run 6 quarts in a regular Cleveland with no issues, then, right? Or is there something I'm missing?
